Manchester United fans enthralled by Marcus Rashford stunner against Costa Rica

Collecting Ruben Loftus-Cheek's pass, Rashford turned into space and unleashed an unstoppable strike from 25 yards out that dipped over Keylor Navas and into the left-hand corner.

Just 11 days before their Group G opener against Tunisia, Thursday's sold-out Elland Road friendly was the last chance for the Three Lions to fine-tune before departing for Russian Federation.

He's right, too. This is how you get the best out of Rashford, Jose.

Ronaldo set up the second in the 37th minute when he sped down the left and provided a pinpoint cross which Fernandes met with a powerful downward header for his first worldwide goal.

England start their World Cup Group G campaign in Russian Federation against Tunisia on June 18, while Costa Rica open against Serbia, a day earlier, in Group E.

Trent Alexander-Arnold made his debut and Jordan Henderson also started as England ran out 2-0 winners over Costa Rica on Thursday night.

"It wasn't the first team that played Nigeria and second team played today".

"We'll definitely take the things that happened in that tournament into the next one because that's going to put us in good stead".

Jordan Pickford is set to start the World Cup after he was given the number one shirt but Butland will have a final opportunity to stake his claim in the worldwide at Elland Road.

"We could go through 11 of those on the basis of what we saw tonight - and that's critical because we won't progress on 11 players chosen in the first game".

Rashford now wants England to head to Russian Federation with the belief that they can spring a surprise during the World Cup.

"I still need to get in the box a bit more to try and finish off some chances from crossing areas, so something to learn from each game".

Manchester United fans and England fans were absolutely blown away by Marcus Rashford after he netted a stunner against Costa Rica.
